Allegheny Valley Conservancy

Mission StatementThe mission of the AVC is to promote good land use through the protection, conservation and management of open-space, forested, agricultural, historic, natural, ecologically significant, environmentally sensitive, biologically diverse, and scenic resources of the Allegheny River and French Creek watersheds in northwestern Pennsylvania. Good land use is essential to the need for clean air, clean water, and livable communities. The primary tool of the conservancy will be legally binding, perpetual, enforceable conservation easements. The conservancy may also accept the donation of land and may purchase significant parcels of land.
